 Grades


Within two weeks of the first day of classes, your instructor will provide a written statement outlining the method of grading and the weights to be assigned to the components of the course. Grade weighting will not change throughout the semester. Final grades are normally posted three business days after writing the final exam, or within three business days of the last day of classes for courses with no final exam. You are responsible for checking your final grades and academic status at the end of each semester.

How do I get my grades?

You can view your grades in MyMRU:

  1. Login to MyMRU
  2. Select the My Program Tab
  3. Go to Student Grades

Grade appeal

You may appeal a final grade under exceptional circumstances. However, appealing a grade does not guarantee that the grade will be changed. If you plan to appeal the grade you must file the formal appeal within 20 days of the grade being posted.

Grade appeals will be considered for the following reasons:

  1. The final grade was not calculated on all work completed and as indicated in the course outline.
  2. There was a mathematical miscalculation of the final grade.
  3. There was an alleged unfair assessment of academic performance.

If you think that you qualify for a grade appeal, please review and follow the steps listed in the Academic Appeal and Grievance section in the current Mount Royal Calendar.


Grade Point Average (GPA)

Mount Royal uses a 4.00 point scale to calculate grades. Your GPA can be calculated at the end of each semester or cumulatively over your academic career. GPA is determined by dividing the total grade points earned by the number of credit hours attempted. You can find your GPA on your transcript and online in MyMRU (My Program>Academic Profile>Transcript).

Your cumulative GPA is used to determine your academic standing at the end of each academic semester. If you repeat a course, only the higher grade awarded is used to determine the cumulative GPA, eligibility to graduate and continuance as a student in good standing at Mount Royal. To graduate from any program you must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.00 in addition to program-specific requirements.

Grades not included in the GPA calculation are: 'AU', 'CR', 'I', 'NC', , 'Q', 'W', 'WC', 'TR', 'EP', 'EF', 'IP', '*', and percentage grades.

For details on grades, transcript symbols and GPA calculations, consult the current Mount Royal Academic Calendar.

 

How to calculate your GPA

You can calculate your GPA at the end of each semester or cumulatively over your academic career. Your cumulative GPA can be calculated using the following equation:

Semester GPA = Semester Quality Points/Semester Quality Hours

Cumulative GPA (overall) = Cumulative Grade Points/ Cumulative Grade Hours
